    Africa Twin

    Africa Twin
    I bought a 99 plate RD07a last week as a project build. It has been in every day uses since registered and has seen better days in its life. It arrived with me yesterday and I got eyes on for the very first time. It's not great but has potential. The engine in the bike has a head gasket...
